"Lavendula angustiflora" or English Lavender is well known for its ability to cause calm, aid in sleep, and de-stress. People have taken advantage of this fact for centuries. Aside from its culinary benefits (such as being delicious!) it has some awesome benefits. And not just being a fantastic plant to make flower crowns out of! Studies have shown that lavender helps with anxiety, fungal infections and hair loss. Lavender has also been seen to help with wound healing, inflammation and PMS symptoms. Brewing it in a tea can help with various digestive issues! Magic is strongly linked with lavender. Many witches consider it one of, if not the, most useful herb. Sewing it into a sachet can help with dream work and will assist in relaxation. Burning it during meditation will increase psychic awareness. Boiling the herb will rid your home of turmoil and negative energy. Lavender can also be used to create peace between those with conflicts. When lavender is mixed with coconut oil, it can be used as a dream salve and a protection balm for those who don't dream or often have nightmares. Please note that this painting will not provide any of these benefits.
